Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is the last step in the removal of a tree. Instead of allowing the stump in the ground to re-grow shoots from the living root system the next spring, we use a large grinder to break the stump down into chips. Stumps are ground to a point below the root mass to isolate the roots and prevent ongoing root damage. After we grind a stump, you can plant a new tree in the same location without root binding.

We usually leave the chips for the homeowner as they make excellent mulch or we can optionally clean-up and remove them for you. We can also arrange for someone to backfill and seed or complete your landscaping plans where the stump was.
